I’m writing these words from my hospital bed.
Just as I was patting myself on the back for making it thus far (7 months) without needing to be hospitalized for neutropenic fever, my temperature shot up last night to 100.5 while my immune system was completely wiped out (with a white blood cell count of 0.3).
So, here I am to get labs tests and blood cultures and IV antibiotics, and damned if I’m not going to get at least a brief Tuesday newsletter out to you guys (plus there really isn’t too much to do in the hospital…).
I’ve been putting the finishing touches on my free cancer quick-start guide, and the final product is close to being released! My goal is to send the final version to my graphic designer Thursday (I found a great designer through the blog who I also got to meet at the World Domination Summit (thank you so much to all who emailed me about helping; I appreciate all of your gracious offers even though I couldn’t take up most of you on them!) and then release it to the world next week.
My last questions for you before I put together the final version…
1) Do you have any more additions or suggestions for the list “27 Ways to Make the Day of Someone With Cancer?” If you already emailed me or left a comment I’ve added your suggestions to the list. Or, do you hvae any suggestions for a list of ways NOT to help a cancer patient (i.e. the “don’ts”)? If there’s anything you can think of that would be good to add, let me know!
2) Are there any copyeditors out there (or just really good close readers) who’d be willing to do a quick final proofread for grammar and spelling errors and typos and such? I’d like to send out the document to a few people tomorrow to look over so I can compile the feedback and still get everything to my designer on Thursday.
